Default 04 wrx just died

04 wrx 2.0
Stock turbo
K&N short ram
3 inch cat less exhaust
Stock fuel system

So, I headed out to work like normal, got 3 miles down the road and my car started bucking, engine power reduced, seemed good for a second or two, then back to intermittent response to gas pedal.

The first couple times it died I restarted it immediately, then it wouldn't start, only after I pushed on the gas while cranking would it start.

It's not a battery connection problem, because nothing ever dimmed.
And I could crank it over again.

I can hear the pump prime normally when I turn the ignition on.

My ideas,
Clogged fuel filter
Fuel pump

Any input would be much appreciated.

MAF had water in it from the blizzard.
If I dry it out, will it be OK?

No telling in all honesty. Best bet would be to buy a new one. Also try and double check if ANY water got into the motor.

How did you manage to suck water in through a SRI?

You can try getting some MAF cleaner at the parts store and see if it helps but, it may have shorted out the sensor.

Buy Electrical Parts Cleaner, same as MAF cleaner, but cheaper. Have you tried starting it w/o the MAF?

Dried out the MAF, started up fine, drove for two hours.
No harm done, I guess.

The water I found out was from the recent snowstorm, my maf cover was not fully in place.
Blowing snow made it's way into my engine bay, and into the sensor, it melted as the car warmed up, that's why I made it 2 miles down the road before it died.

Anyway, it seems to be fine now.

Thanks for the input!
